November 13 through December 27, 2020
Most receptions for art exhibits last between 2 and 4 hours, but in these crazy times, Artists’ Market Community Center has scheduled an "84 Hour Holiday Reception".
In the past AMCC has had huge Holiday parties that lasted for two hours. This year, to adjust to the latest current events, we’ll be hosting a much longer reception, so people can enjoy what we have to offer in smaller, safer groups.
The unusually long reception is from 9:30 AM through 3:30 PM every weekend from now until the end of the year. The same types of refreshments, discussions, and entertainment will be available, for a few people at a time, that have been available during the larger, shorter receptions of previous years.
On display are two standing exhibits:
"The Story of Christmas in Classic Art" includes 10 images created from 1335 through 1643, beginning with Fra Angelico’s "The Annunciation" (1440), when an angel delivers the news that Mary is pregnant. The display follows the story all the way through, ending with Orazio Gentileschi’s 1626 masterpiece, "Rest on the Flight to Egypt", showing the holy family fugitives, hiding from Herod on their way home.
Another exhibit, "Creation Stories from Around the World" includes artistic depictions of Native American, Ancient Egyptian, Hindu, Babylonian, Chinese, Ancient Greek, and Islamic creation stories. Two images feature the Chinese Creation Story of how the universe began as a big, black cosmic egg. The egg gave birth to Pangu, who, in one stunning image, is separating the Yin from the Yang with an axe.
Also, on display are artwork and holiday gift items created by local artists.
Everyone who stops in during the "84 Hour Holiday Reception" will receive a free gift of Holiday cards created by local artists. Complimentary food and beverages will be available throughout, and, upon request, staff on duty will provide live entertainment.
The "84 Hour Holiday Reception" is at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA from 9:30 AM through 3:30 PM weekends, November 13th through December 27th, 2020.
The "84 Hour Holiday Reception" is made possible through a grant from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered by the Greater Pike Community Fund.

What’s so great about "vintage" cars that were slower, less reliable, less comfortable, less safe, and more expensive than cars today?
"I’ll tell you", says vintage car buff David "Scotty" Greenberger. "Each one is a slice of history—personal history and national history."
He goes on to say that modern, mass produced vehicles just don’t have the same aesthetics. And while new cars depreciate in value each year, vintage autos often go up in value over time.
Scotty and other vintage car enthusiasts will be displaying their prize pieces at the "Celebration of Vintage Vehicles" on July 4. He’ll be bringing his 1955 Sunbeam Alpine MK III—one of only 21 in the entire world.
Vintage car lovers are invited to attend this free event, and vintage car owners are welcome to show off their own cars. So if you own a vintage vehicle, bring it on down.
This is an indoor/outdoor event, accommodating the latest guidance on social distancing and face covering. On the street will be a display of vintage vehicles. In the backyard of the Artists’ Market Community Center will be a live Q&A on classic autos.
Inside on the first floor will be a standing exhibit of vintage car ads from the 1920s through the 1960s. Many of these early ads were done in the early art deco style and have become collectors’ items. Light refreshments will be available on the second floor.
It’s all happening at 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA on July 4, 2020 from 3:30 – 6:00PM.
This event is sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association and made possible with the help of funding from the Richard L Snyder Fund, administered by the Greater Pike Community Foundation. Event Coordinator: Robert Bradley
A Celebration of Kindred Spirits:
Painters and Poets
"Poets and painters constitute a special class of their own, like the circus people". This quote, spoken affectionately by writer Gerald Brenan, is the inspiration for a "Celebration of Kindred Spirits" for National Poetry Month.

"A Celebration of Kindred Spirits: Painters and Poets" is sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association, and made possible by grants from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered through the Greater Pike Community Foundation, and through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Throughout 2020, AMCC is hosting "Creative Differences"—a place for artists and art lovers to forcefully and respectfully offer their opinions on the most pressing issues in the world of art. These questions don’t have answers, but that’s never stopped us from friendly arguments and drinking coffee.
The topics are listed in advance, below, to give time for reflection beforehand. Everyone is welcome to offer their opinion, or just sit and listen. Complimentary refreshments are provided. You've got to come to one to realize how much fun they are.
It's 2 PM the first Sunday of every month, at the Artists' Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA. For dates, discussion topics, and other details CLICK HERE
